2/4 Vox Lux "...well-meaning but disjointed. It is too bad that Corbet's mediocre musical drama could not have hit a better sounding note to illustrate its probing point."

4/5 The Girl With All the Gifts "I'll admit to a swell of patriotic pride as Brit zombies wobbled aimlessly in front of a few of my favourite stores. This UK-set story employs some classic tropes yet its allegories never overwhelm an ambivalent tale that's both exciting and questioning."

Mary Poppins Returns "It may be a back-handed compliment to say it was better than I thought it would be, but that's the truth. I wish Disney hadn't made this film at all, but I'm glad they put it in the hands of talented people who knew what was at stake and gave it their all"

B Aquaman "It's big and splashy, a visual feast with real stakes, but also with an earnestness it wears proudly on its sleeve."

3.5/4 Cold War (Zimna wojna) "Watching the film is a hypnotic experience. Part of that is surely due to the star power of Joanna Kulig, who Pawlikowski gives a luscious showcase to. "

3/4 The Quake (Skjelvet) "There's fun to be had with this movie. While meant to be melodramatic, it still never feels overly serious. It's not silly either, so the fun is in seeing this done so well."

2.5/5 Mary Poppins Returns "...less than a sequel than a muddled attempt to clone the elements of the original film. "

B- Vox Lux "A flawed but flashy social commentary drama played as a satire on this century's pop culture scene."

Best F(r)iends, Part 2 "Best F(r)iends is a project that few will see, but those who do will most likely enjoy it immensely. Sure, it is not Academy Award-worthy emotional storytelling, but the film knows what it's trying to achieve and it succeeds in that."

Aquaman "Released fifteen years ago, this flick would have been a good enough romp to pass the time. Now, however, with the advent of so many incredible superhero ventures, Aquaman just feels stagnant."

The Favourite "Watching The Favourite is like receiving a beautifully wrapped gift, with beautiful wrapping and silken ribbon, only to open it and be confronted by the horrific spectacle of a dead, rotting rat. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing."

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation isn't the finest Xmas movie you'll ever see, but it's disarmingly heartfelt at times, and the over-the-top extravaganzas (like the house lights you could probably see from space) epitomize Christmas. "

Back Roads "A well-acted, mostly captivating, and wholly unpredictable noir, Back Roads is an impressive directorial debut for Pettyfer, who pulls double-duty in his strongest screen performance yet."

Anna and the Apocalypse "Anna and the Apocalypse is a roller-coaster of inspired madness, great music, and surprising emotional weight."

Aquaman "Obviously, there are some negatives here. Still, AQUAMAN is a hard movie not to recommend. It is often funny, has a good heart, and its star proves incredibly endearing."

Bumblebee "The Transformers franchise was dead in the water after the last outing but Bumblebeehelps give it the ounce of freshness that it so desperately needed."

Mary Poppins Returns "Mary Poppins Returns serves as a reminder that, for all its global scope and hegemonic ambition, Disney still has a little magic left up its sleeve."

Roma "Roma captures, as well as any film I have seen, the spirit of "magical realism," without ever hinting at the supernatural. Its magic is pure, stunning cinematic technique."

Green Book "First-rate execution can't solve all of a film's problems, but Mortensen and Ali offer a reminder that it can solve an awful lot of them."

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs "Though the stories are individually captivating and very much worth the price of admission-see the film on a big screen if you can-they fit together awkwardly."

3/4 Mary Poppins Returns "Blunt is the movie's backbone. She is wise, witty and mischievous - with a twinkle in her eye. She is not so much the film's protagonist, as she is the engine who, with a few words or a gesture, directs people to the right path."

3.5/5 Upgrade "It's not exactly sophisticated aesthetically or thematically, being another skeptical morality play on the dangers of biotechnological advancements that seek to erase our humanity, but Upgrade is quite a likable bit of pulp."

3.5/5 Mary Poppins Returns "an immersive time capsule to origins of Disney magic that feels like a legitimate sequel rather than a cynical reboot"

3.5/5 The Ballad of Buster Scruggs "The Coens have used the anthology structure to not just tell a spread of stories but also chart a transition from the ridiculous to the sublime: the codes of the Western are first mocked and then dissected. "
